Music has always been a big part of my life therefore my hobbies have included singing and dancing from a very young age. After I decided to quit playing soccer due to some knee injuries and surgical procedures, I really wanted to find another hobby to help me stay active that I enjoyed as much as soccer. I decided to turn to my love for music and became a certified Zumba Fitness Instructor and a member of the Zumba Instructor Network. Zumba has helped me merge my love for music, meeting others, building an inclusive community, and staying active.
My Zumba class offers a judgement-free zone where you can get a killer cardio workout by moving to the beat of various types of music (the majority being Latin). I am passionate about motivating and bringing laughter and smiles to others.
Outside of Zumba, I do have a full time profession. I got my bachelor's degree at George Fox University in psychology with minors in French and criminal justice. My passions outside of leading Zumba include playing/watching soccer, traveling, singing, and dancing.
I look forward to seeing you in one of my classes! Remember, there is no right way to Zumba, let the music move you!
